2021 Brides: here are some of the chicest wedding hairstyles

If 2021 is the year where you say “I do”, then this guide to the current prettiest wedding hairstyles is just what you need to look absolutely gorgeous on your wedding day! We took it upon ourselves to scout for a variety of both artistic and simple wedding hair looks so that you can choose a style that compliments your dress and your personality.

From loose dreamy beach waves to classic and enchanting updos, we’ll help you to look radiant on your big day. And if you’re a guest who wants to look just as lovely at a wedding, then these styles will work for you too.

{Note} The styles we have included below work best with medium to long hair. If your hair is cropped very short, then hair extensions can be used for each technique.

Classic updo

The classic updo is a timeless bridal hairstyle that will  no doubt stay on trend for years to come. This style can also be adapted to flatter all face shapes, hair textures and dress styles. . Your strands can be secured tightly for a chic yet elegant look or you can loosen the hold with face-framing strands for a softer more romantic ‘do.

Tip: Give life and body to your updo by adding a professional volumising spray to your roots.

Use our award-winning Favoloso Mousse to add bounce to your locks. This gentle mousse will also hold your hairstyle in place without making it look hard or processed.

This is one of the best wedding hairstyles for long hair. It’s a dazzling way to wear your locks off your shoulders and play with texture at the same time. 2021 sees the elegant low bun accentuated with dainty pins, bridal scarves, and floral accessories.

Before you style your hair, add a shining oil to your locks for radiantly glossy tresses. Our recommendation: Prodigio Oil. This is the perfect touch for all wedding hairstyles, as it not only protects hair from heat styling, but it also adds a non-greasy, light-weight shine to the hair.

Tip: Use dry shampoo to boost roots and volumise your tresses for a “fuller” look.

Brides can secure low bun hairstyles in place with a light mousse.

Half up, half downhalf-up wedding hairstyle

This hairstyle works best with medium-length thick hair. If your hair is fine or too short, we recommend investing in good-quality hair extensions for both length and added volume.

Before you style your hair, add Dolce Protect and Detangle Spray to your tresses. This product will enhance your styling ritual by effortlessly adding strength and moisture to your hair.

Add Brillante Oil to give your half up half down wedding hairstyle a magical wedding-day shine.

Tip: Add a powerful anti-frizz serum to thick (or fine) hair to keep frizz and flyaways at bay.

Beach wedding waves

Light and loose beach waves support the ideology that “less is more”. If you want a natural no-fuss look for your wedding day, then you can’t go wrong with loose waves. The look can be achieved using curling tongs or you can use the diffuser attachment on your blow-dryer for an ultimately “carefree” wavy hairstyle (which is all the rave at the moment).

Tip: If you go down the heat-styling route, remember to apply heat protection to your locks so that your strands can retain moisture and be protected from heat damage.

Add a light mousse to your hair to hold locks in place and finish off with Rossano Ferretti Parma’s designer Favoloso spray to give texture and energy to the lengths.

Simple wedding braid

A simple wedding braid can be romantic and dreamy. It’s an ideal option for outdoor summertime weddings and it’s also one of those wedding guest hairstyles that can be kept subtle and chic (so that you don’t outshine the bride). We love the traditional plait for this occasion, but you can play around Mermaid braiding too.

Use Favoloso Mousse for body, volume and a light hold.

Tip: Apply a dry shampoo to your roots for added volume. Our favourite is Vivace Dry Shampoo Crème. Inspired by the cottage gardens of Tuscany, this designer haircare product will energise your hair for a radiant look.

We’ve added this look to the list because it’s currently all the fashion and allows you to get the best of both worlds (an up and down look). The hairstyle is achieved by using half of your hair to create a bun, with the rest of your bottom layer locks hanging loose (it’s almost like the half up half down style but with more emphasis on the “up” part being a bun).

Tip: Apply a texturising spray to your loose locks to add depth and movement to this style.

Grandioso Volumising Spray is the ideal designer hair product for this look. This award-winning vegan-friendly spray will give loose hair a natural volume boost whilst lifting hair straight from the roots for added movement around your crown.
